it directly on advertising, which, say the chamber of commerce often does, you will at least know where it's coming from because it'll say the "chamber of commerce," or it'll say a, "improve america," a project of the chamber of commerce. >>> the u.s. chamber is responsible for the content of this advertising. >>> the u.s. chamber is responsible for the content of this advertising. >>> the u.s. chamber of commerce is responsible for the content of this advertising. >>> so you know when they spend it directly, at least what part of the economy it's coming from. however, they may well give that money to another organization which isn't even got their name on it. so if they end up giving it to a (c) (4) which then spends the money and that group is called better america, you don't know where better america's money came from. so it is, these groups do not themselves disclose their donors. and again, you know, most of their work is lobbying, it's oriented towards issues. you may well be right, that they have really strong policy positions. but what they would say is, "the money we spend directl
the app so badly. >> last week on this program, we talked with their fellow at energy and commerce committee member. we talked about the need for a more comprehensive telecom rewrite or privacy bill. what are your views on that? >> he has been taught an awful lot, but in this space, it is more have be regulated and i believe it is wise. i care about california companies and innovation that is driven out of california. perhaps i care more for the companies and start-ups that are saying, do not regulate this space. i think he believes that things are technologically feasible when i am not sure that they are. these are questions for committee hearings. >> how would you grade the health of the tech community? >> i would grade it as an extremely strong and growing. yesterday i asked a very important question -- are we headed toward another tech bubble? our wheat risking -- are we too good to-- is this be true? people are optimistic that this is a strong economy. i believe that to be true. >> last time we talk with you, you were holding hearings about sony play station and the data breac
the city can use land use controls when it might conflict with fair commerce regulations. >> right. >> but i'm not particularly familiar with that. it's something we could certainly look into. >> okay. that would be great, just wondering one way or another. and then this came up when i was talking to some of the small businesses. someone suggested that we have an inclusionary ordinance, sort of what we have for housing and new developments that are mixed-use. is there any way of requiring a percentage be independent or family-owned retail? or is that not possible? >> again, i think it might be possible. again the limits for what we can regulate as far as interstate commerce and what is fair competition. we can look into that and get back to this body. >> okay. finally conditional use. i know this were some areas of the city where big box is allowed without hearing. >> that is correct. >> where are those? >> petraro. it's not like the sud so it would depend on the underlying use. >> i would like to understand that a little bit better. you can answer it here. thank you. >>
the republican presidential debate. >> it's three agencies of government when i get there that are gone. commerce, education, and the -- what's the third one there? let's see. >> i would do away with education, the -- commerce -- commerce -- and let's see -- i can't. the third one, i can't, sorry. oops. >> that's okay. governor. the book says that perry went virtually sleepless during much of his campaign which of course as you probably remember ended early in 2012. mitt romney making for a pricey event last night in l.a. about 1500 tickets were sold, ranging from $1,000, to $50,000. comedian dennis miller, producer david foster and actor gary sinese among the attendees. and you remember joe biden's great pumpkin we showed to you? a the giant squash got some first-class treatment. he it flown back to his home in d.c. in time for halloween. and who says the fourth estate ain't funky? remember this clip? that's "meet the press" moderator david gregory in the back along with al and safny and it looked like nat any more rals. showing off some moves. it doesn't end there, folks. the show also posted a
merchant's association, the golden gate restaurant association, the chamber of commerce, the national parks conservancy, the last meeting, a couple of the restaurant managers did come out to support this endeavor, as well as two of the landlords, drakes east bay company, we're excited because they're a local company, food service distributors, the peninsula, spca, dug mccon nel and erik bran den badgering, although this project has a lot of support, staff has spoken to members of community who expressed concerns about hours of operation, delivery schedule, outreach, lights and garbage and a number of people bho have come to this meeting -- come to the operations community include patricia joy, arthur, gloria and louis dillon. as we move forward, our next steps, we do recommend that the commission does approve the recommendation for the board of supervisors to approve this lease agreement. upon approval by the commission to recommend the agreement, staff will work diligently with the board of supervisors to schedule this item. should it be approved by the board, wood house will hire an archi
. that is what i call the technology chamber of commerce and we have over 300 companies now that are members. they are helping us figure out how to make sure that the companies are here, comfortably, but also how we train the new workforce to continue this fantastic growth in employment with the technology companies. >> and these companies are paying? >> oh, yes. >> who are the most helpful companies that you have found here? >> oh, gosh, there are so many of them. i was, for example, jawbone is one of the members and they stepped up along with all the members, all the major members of city this summer to help me create over 5,000 jobs for kids. >> child labor? >> no, summer-pay internships. >> not like 6 years old building iphones. >> these were high school and college graduates, but they are all looking for jobs and they want to be exposed to this wonderful world of technology. so they picked them up and a lot of that target was for disadvantaged kids in our city. >> that is great. >> and now these kids who came through these summer jobs, they are thinking about their future and
this week. mr. romney speaking to the hispanic chamber of commerce. the president on univision. everybody agrees they need 38% of the latino vote. right now the president is up two to one among latinos. continuing with kristine pelosi and jackie gingrich cushman and senator evan bayh. can the republican candidate overcome his own harsh, very harsh antiimmigration rhetoric during the primary season and draconian language that broke no compromise, no compassion at all for the undocumented? >> i think it really is a problem for mitt romney but a bigger problem for conservatives and republicans in the future. the demographic wave of hispanics that has hit america is something that is going to be continuing and if conservatives cannot reach out and win hispanic support they are going to be a permanent minority. so mitt romney has got to get serious about this. i think the best way to do that is to talk about legal immigration reform. because the fact is illegal immigration is now down to a 40 year low. and we he could solve illegal immigration if we would simplyn legally, people that we need w
young was killed inside a home on commerce way near san antonio park just before 7:00 p.m. the gunman then walked out of the house and got into a ford econo line van and drove away. according to the contra costa times young worked as a handyman at the church. a $10,000 reward is now being offered for information leading to the arrest of that shooter. >>> and just a few hours later two people were shot by stray bullets while inside their apartment. oakland police say there was a shoot-out on 84th near dowling street. as many as 20 rounds were fired in the street. two people in a nearby apartment were struck and taken to the hospital with non-life- threatening injuries. >>> dozens of protesters marched from five different parts of oakland to converge on city hall as part of a weekend long peace movement. >> if today is not the day to make a difference, then you tell me when is going to be a better day. >> the main message of event was to stop the violence in the community. mayor jean quan attended today's peace rally and talked to ktvu about a major improvement she has seen between th
and the report is up on the energy and commerce website. didn't get press. but it was startling how much they were going to be transparent and above board but when it came time to do the work they closed the doors and wrote the bill. >> interesting that he said lobbyist wouldn't have part. doctor, the obama care will affect you dramatically and talk about what ways. >> governor, this act and this law unfortunately, dismembered the very foundation of health care, and that is it the patient/doctor relationship. everything good about care happens between me and my patient in an examine room. four walls and a closed door and the government doesn't belong there. [applause] this bill -- this bill invites the government not just into the room, but into the process, and the decision process. it takes away choice it takes away privacy. imagine your records are now sent to the federal government for their perusement. it is it a, abominable the sad thing is, it doesn't allow physicians to do our job. we just want to be able to do our job. we are professionalings. we want to work for our patients. i
are now in the business of doing fmri lie detection. there the commerce is pushing the science a little bit faster than maybe it ought to. i agree. >> the science. >> the science, right, exactly. >> ok, we have some questions from the audience that i would like to ask. and i think most of these are probably for the doctor. first question, how does the brain research impact drug cases when the defendand is an addict? >> addiction does bad things to the brain. it dramatically changes the brain. in certain individuals, there is enormous vulnerabilities and risk factors from genetics and brain function that can precipitate or make it to be easier to get addicted to drugs. and there have been, i think, quite a bit of neuroscience focusing on trying to develop better treatments for individuals by understanding the mechanism of those changes. in the courtroom, i believe that to help judges, judges when we do the education, one of my collaborators who does this work teaches them how the brain changes with addiction, et cetera, et cetera. that may be helpful for judges sentencing to drug courts
agree on the idea of a serious commerce asian centered on this document. since i mentioned amendments, i don't make too many predictions but i will say that most of the amendments, as a practical matter, have the support of both parties because it's hard to get two-thirds, two-thirds-3/4 without both parties being on board. the great amendments of the 1960's for example, the great iconic statutes of the 1960's and the civil rights acts of civic -- civil rights act of 64 and the voting rights act of 65 in a fair housing act of 68. republicans and democrats in the spirit that you're calling for and one of her thought since we are talking about our sponsoring institutions for this really extraordinary conversation, and that is the national archives. i think that the framers of the constitution who would amending their regime, they studied the state constitution and they saw which ones work and didn't. massachusetts put his concentration to a vote so let's put our constitution to a vote. most of the constitutions have three branches of government. let's go at that. most of them have bicamera
on coal act. you should know that according to democrats on the energy and commerce committee the stop the war on coal act is a 302nd bill passed by the republican house this year alone to include provisions endanger land, water and air by weakening rules and epa and existing protections for coastal areas and public lands. you should know that in a republican senate led by a long-standing friend of coal industry polluters this bill would have a better chance of sailing through. the battle for controlled congress may have as much to do with the country as the presidential lace does. you should know what tim pawlenty is doing as he stepped down as the co-chair to become ceo of the financial services roundtable, one. most powerful industry groups in washington representing the interests of wall street and fighting tooth, nail and claw against any and all regulatory incursions that might reduce the power or profitability of the financial sector. according to reports, pawlenty's salary could be $2 million a year. he joins a long list of former politicians, democrat and republican, who cashe
to commerce and trade and later, of course, would sponsor the federal highway system, at that time the largest public works project in american history. eisenhower was a military man, but he was not militaristic. >>> this is, that he did in not think war was a solution to anything. he was, as one aide recalled, slow to pick up the sword. ike's public persona, that grandfatherly man with a big smile and a love of golf was largely ike's personal invention. behind the scenes, he was strategically rigorous and a tough-minded commander in chief. the people who worked for him never doubted who was in charge. eisenhower was a citizen of the world more than any other president. yet he never forgot where he came from, that's why his presidential library is in abilene, kansas, close to where i live. ike was not a professional politician, yet he was one of the most successful politicians in our history, and supremely protective of his hero's image. ike did not hesitate to use subordinates like john foster dulles as lightning rods for controversial policies that were, in fact, ike's creation. eisenhower w
to london. that's why atlanta, georgia, is a hub of commerce. the american liberal isn't -- and his blighted neighborhood looks upon all of this. he hates the south like an east berliner hated west berlin. throughout the were with seen this time and time again. havens of entrepreneurialism and individual liberty have always outperformed the statist neighbors. whether it was west germany leaping over east germany, hong kong and taiwan putting china to shame, or singapore outshining impoverish malaysia. this has been universal truth of history. the south fulfills that same role today. that's why liberals hate the south. [applause] liberals hate the south because what they believe is an assignment of ignorance has defeated them in affluence and sophistication. they can barely stand it, but there is so. and it lies in a once in virtue i've yet to mention because much as bill of rights the south, in in even a little has to find a place to live and work and that's where southern hospitality drives the final minute into the dream. because if the liver packs up and leaves, he knows with dread and so
it is the makes not a great leader of nations but of science, ideology and commerce. moving to history and politics and communication. the chairmen and ceo of cnn and somewhere along the way he turned his appetite into making stories of his own. his latest book is an exploration of life and personality of the founder and chief of apple. to hear from someone else may have turned the book into a puff piece with have the on accomplishment and light on flaws but it is a full-scale war it and all portrait. the story of the boy who started the vision into a worldwide phenomenon. somebody said yesterday his book is another perfectly designed product by steve jobs. he knew for a booktv any good it would have to be written by a veteran. he chose the right man. i'd like to introduce an american with the deep appreciation for history. babies and gentlemen, walter isaacson. [applause] they call of the wall. about eight years ago i got a phone call from steve jobs knowing him for when he came to time magazine and to show off the macintosh. even then i saw the passion for perfection and how those wo
